I am so excited to guide you…

Writing for children has changed my life. 

I know exactly what it’s like to take that leap of faith. To go from desperately wanting to make a difference, to seeing my message impact hundreds of thousands of children. 

Now, I find that helping a new author bring their story into the world is one of the most fulfilling parts of my life. I want to share that with you TODAY. 

If you want to write for children, the best thing you can do is invest in yourself and see what your life would be like as a children’s book author. 

I want you to experience the incredible feeling of holding your book in your hands for the first time, celebrating with your friends and family, and seeing a child choose YOUR book off the shelf.

That feeling is indescribable.

I could say that accepting the invitation to CBM will change your life, and it will, but the truth is that it's going to impact so many more lives than your own. 

I’m looking forward to meeting you personally in the Children’s Book Masterclass.
